Advice

Do you need specific advice about seed rates, fertilisers or agronomy? Ask your local supplier or Meijer contact.

  • Avoid strongly chitted seed as chits are liable to break off during planting and severely affect vigour. It is preferable to break off chits by decanting into boxes and wait for eyes to re-open before planting.
  • Sensitive to Sencorex (Metribuzin) used at the full dose when applied pre-emergence.
  • Do not cultivate on common scab prone soils.
  • Susceptible to Fusarium dry rots.
